Meet The FreshBooks Team

Executive Team

Mike McDerment
Mike McDerment CEO (Co-Founder)

Mike McDerment is the co-founder and CEO of FreshBooks, planet earth’s #1 cloud accounting solution designed for small business owners. In 2003, Mike built FreshBooks for his design firm, scratched his own itch, then moved into his parent’s basement for 3.5 years to get FreshBooks off the ground. Since then over 5,000,000 people have used FreshBooks to save time billing and collect billions of dollars. Mike and his team dedicate themselves to executing extraordinary experiences everyday for small business owners who want to focus on the work they love, instead of on their paperwork.

Levi Cooperman
Levi Cooperman VP Operations (Co-Founder)

Levi is a professional engineer with a BEng from the University of Victoria. Before joining FreshBooks, Levi managed projects at Apex Systems Integrators Inc., where his clients included Canadian Tire, Nestlé, and Parmalat. Levi is a systems integration specialist and has led multi-platform integrations with technologies such as: Oracle, SAP, .NET, Windows CE and Pocket PC. An ultimate frisbee, volleyball and basketball player, we suspect he may have stuffed toy dinosaurs hidden in his condo, such is the level of his support for the Toronto Raptors.

Warren Faleiro
Warren Faleiro Chief Technology Officer

Warren leads the product development team at FreshBooks and is responsible for making the platform and team efficient, scalable, and always improving. He loves it when we ship code and since joining FreshBooks he’s helped the team re-organize and focus on solving big technical challenges through collaboration, experimentation, and process improvement. Warren is known for his passion for craft beers, Bungee Runs and wearing flannel whenever appropriate (most days).

Shawn Cadeau
Shawn Cadeau Chief Marketing Officer

Shawn is a marketing guy that has a passion for digital campaigns, branding and metrics. He’s a creative, compassionate, high achiever that’s always looking for innovative ways to solve problems. When Shawn is not thinking about marketing he has a passion for sports, movies, cars and technology that is only overshadowed by his love of spending time with his wife and daughter. He has a dog who won’t be permitted in the office due to his penchant for howling and stealing food. Shawn joined FreshBooks to kick our marketing into high gear as we continue to spread the word to small businesses around the world. Shawn is a veteran software company leader with years of experience defining and implementing marketing strategies for companies like Corel and Adobe. Prior to joining FreshBooks Shawn was the SVP of global marketing at Corel for 7 years.

Mark Girvan
Mark Girvan VP, Sales & Business Development

Mark is a general management executive with a track record of delivering significant growth in new business markets. He prides himself on being a results-oriented leader who focuses on operational excellence through developing teams and motivating change across functional groups. Outside of work, Mark’s passions include his family, canoeing tripping, a weekly attempt to reclaim past hockey glory and his yearly pilgrimages south of the border to watch the greatest sport on earth—NCAA basketball. At FreshBooks, Mark leads the efforts to grow our community of loyal micro-business customers.

Matthew Baker
Matthew Baker VP, Strategic Planning

Once referred to as “Matty Fresh,” Matt is a reformed management consultant and a Xoogler. Matt joined FreshBooks to help build a strategy function from the ground up. He’s a calming influence on others, a natural team builder, and drawn to root cause problem solving. In addition to general sports enthusiasm, Matt is a reader of science fiction and a fan of ice cream.

Michael Washinushi
Michael Washinushi Chief Financial Officer

Consummate finance guy at work and home. I enjoy building back of the napkin financial models or spreadsheets on everything. Life outside of excel consists of family with a great wife and two energetic kids, travel, cycling, skiing and jogging. Striving towards objectives, teamwork, having fun and lots of informal / formal communication is part of my daily regimen.
